About Connie Hyde Silvestri

I am an Islander and enjoy the lifestyle of meeting people while embracing family life. I have great respect for tourism and love hospitality and the many opportunities to meet new people and different cultures. And like most islanders I greet people with a warm and friendly smile. Although life is simple on the island there are many features that I like. I do enjoy the beach and visit every week end. I work at a Shipping Company and we import all the US goods coming to the island. When people move here I am mainly the person who helps assist with bringing in household goods.

I have done quite a bit of travel abroad and have enjoyed visiting new places. Italy is one of my favorites but Florida in the US is special, and is nearest so I visit often, but enjoy coming back to my little couch!! Roatan! The place I truly love and enjoy!

Connie Hyde Silvestri purchased this villa in 2010

Why Connie Hyde Silvestri chose Bay Islands Honduras

This property sits in the perfect location, while still being totally private, it is close enough to most of the island's feature attractions and points of interest. Just minutes away from the town of French Harbour, known as, the oldest and largest 'Fishermen Village' in all of Central America. You will enjoy a variety of interesting activities and fun filled excitement in the surrounding areas such as, Parrot Tree Plantation, Barefoot Caye, Maya Caye, Frenchies 44, The SPA at Pineapple Village, The Iguana Farm, not to mention, a variety of Zip Lines (Canopy's), and of course, World Famous 'Black Pearl' golf course of 'Pristine Bay'.

What makes this villa unique

Hyde Residence, offers private ocean views from each guest room. It was designed particularly to enjoy the scenery from the hilltop overlooking the lush green hills of the island. Enjoy watching the the activity of the nearby harbor, while boats drift, motor or sail enjoying the wind, surf and scuba dive. Some commute to work in canoes, others transporting deliveries of fresh seafood product like fish, shrimp and lobster for local and export.

Hyde Residence offers privacy and tranquility for those who want to be away but not totally secluded. Where guests can enjoy private catered dinning or casual island Bar-B-Cues under the stars on the open wrap around deck and Patio. We could say, this home was personally designed for comfort, leisure, entertainment and family. This will meet your highest expectations of a home away from home in the perfect tropical setting overlooking the Caribbean sea.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Highly recommend this home for a tranquil and pleasant place to be. Enjoyed the design and detail which make it very relaxing.

We were close to the cruise ship dock for nice duty free shopping and near barefoot cay with private beach and great diving.

Just love Roatan and we will be back to Hyde's Residence again

Beautiful Hyde's Residence

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for an unforgettable family vacation! My wife, kids and I had the pleasure of staying in your beautifully decorated home recently and have already started our plans on coming back. The views from the balcony overlooking the ocean are spectacular, although not on the beach, you made it so convenient for us to get there and to any other activities we had on our agendas. The Island has so much to offer we did not want to leave, it is like a small piece of paradise and coming back to your home at the end of a busy day to just relax, and have such a peaceful setting on top of the mountain was more than we could ask for. Thank you from my family for the most enjoyable vacation we have ever had, looking forward to returning again in the near future!!

Great time at the Hyde Residence

  • 5 of 5

Who can say you can´t have a great time in Roatan with a house that has no beachfront!!! My family and myself had a great time since we arrived at Roatan. The house is in French Harbour which is halfway between West End and Punta Gorda. The house is absolutely comfortable, lot of room for a médium sized family. We were 5 adults and 2 children. You can see great views of the ocean from every room in the house. Great decoration, nice kitchen, Central A/C, two great master bedrooms, with everything you need, washer/dryer, a deck big enough for parties, or family reunions.

Our hosts/owners Robin and Connie were always concerned on us having a great time, giving us tips on what were the best options to do around the island and made us feel welcome at their house. Connie lent us her condo to go to Mayan Princess and enjoy life at West End for two days, so after we had enough of West End we travelled to Frenchy´s 44 key (which is a five minute trip from Hyde residence ) which I think is marvelous and its a more exclusive beach than West End. We went to Maya Key which is a 15 min ride from the house. Had a great time as well. I would recommend a visit to the South Shore or Gumbalimba Zip line, Punta Gorda, Herby´s, Gio´s, Vintage Pearl, Parrot Tree, Gumbalimba park, Frenchy´s 44, Pristine Bay Resort, Mahogany Bay!!!

The Hyde sisters provided us with a full time handyman/gardner that kept the house clean, opened the gates for you and looked after everything you needed and offered always a helping hand when you came back home from supermarket, store, etc.

Overall I would rate this vacation with a big fat 10!!!! 10 days of pure pleasure in our Christmas vacation. In this villa you have the versatility to visit more places and not travel as much, whereas when you are in West End, you have that one beach and every time you want to travel its a 30 minute ride minimun everywhere you go.

I would definitely come back!!!

Nothing but the Best

  • 5 of 5

The House: Stunning! This villa's beautifully decorated and incredibly spacious with lots of room for family and friends. The view of the ocean and sunsets were beautiful and enjoyed from the deck. Modern amenities are all included too! A/C, washer/dryer, TV, and a gourmet kitchen (hire the chef and you're all set!).

The Location: You can't beat it! Minutes from the airport, cruise ship dock (shopping!), and ferry, with several of the best beaches just a short drive away. East or West, you pick! It's also close to area attractions such as the exciting zip line adventures, iguana farm, amazing restaurants and nightlife. Whether you're looking for a quiet night in or a fun night out, you can have the best of both worlds.

Get ready to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. The food is delicious, sights are gorgeous, locals are vibrant, and there's no time like island time. Have fun!

Owner's Response: So nice to know see that you recommend our vacation rental! It will definitely prove to be comfort away from home for those who enjoy privacy while still having all the island has to offer just minutes away!! Look forward to see you again Connie

Our Roatan family vacation

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home with exceptional views of the ocean and the town of French Harbour. Exquisitely decorated and very spacious with a large balcony which was great for dining al fresco in the evenings!! Although not on the beach, it was a short ride to and provided us with a more private setting away from the crowds. We found the local people of Roatan to be very warm, friendly and outgoing. An Island where life is lived at a slightly slower pace in order to appreciate all the details that come your way. The beaches are some of THE MOST pristine we have ever seen in our travels and the diving facilities were top notch. Thank you for an amazing family vacation, we thoroughly enjoyed your home and look forward to our return in the very near future!!

Roatan, is 30 miles north of the Honduras coastline and it is the largest of the three Bay Islands. Located in the center it is 33 miles long by 3 and half at the widest point. It is mostly known for Scuba Diving and Cruisers with crystal clear and warm tropical waters, it's walls that drop down to 100 plus feet. On the south side the reef is near the shore and on the north side it extends out beyond the beaches. Other activities include sport fishing, sailing, Iguana Farm, Bird Parks, botanical gardens and Zip Lines. Guest who stay at Hyde's residence will enjoy luxury and comfort while it's location is near enough to all the island has to offer yet in it's own private setting. Enjoy world's best scuba diving, take an afternoon sail on catamaran, enjoy duty free shopping at the cruise terminals or spend a day on world famous 18 hole golf course at 'Pristine Bay'
